Description

Seiichi Furuya crosses back and forth between the borders of systems, cultures and epochs. One of the last masters of the ephemeral, with his project Gravitation he re-examines the sum of his photographic work. Gravitation is a distillation of his photographic memory, taken from four decades of his surveying and exploration, a body of work that continues to grow and expand. Image for image, the black and white photographs – memories extracted from silver salts – cover the entire horizon of his photographic world from the inside out. This horizon seldom brightens (black is the dominant shade), continually forcing the viewer’s glance towards the ground, the earth – from which everything begins and to which everything returns again. In this way Gravitation proves to be a different kind of retrospective, a poetic meditation on that which remains behind and only becomes recognizable when it’s all over.
